In this episode of the Book Nerd Podcast, I’m going to discuss my favourite mystery and thriller novels that I read in 2021. I what you’re thinking, “it’s been a while since the end of 2021,” but hear me out. I wanted to put a bit of distance between the end of 2021 and my reading because I wanted to discuss the books that stood out to me the most. From memory, I read close to fifty books in 2021. Actually, I’ve checked, and it was 49 books read.
As you can tell by the title of this episode, I’m going to discuss the Agatha Raisin books vs TV Series. In order to avoid spoilers, I’m going to focus on how Agatha is portrayed and not the events in the show and novels.
As you can guess by the spoiler-y title, I will share with you an embarrassingly long and overdue female amateur sleuth book haul. On a surprising note, I have managed to stop myself from reading these books. As always, I will endeavour to be as spoiler-free as possible.
As you can tell by the super spoiler-y title of this video, I’ll be doing the Book Buying Tag created by Megan Olivier. Click the link on my blog to watch the original version of the tag on YouTube. Even though this is quite an old tag that was created back in 2013, I loved it so much that I clearly couldn’t resist filming it. And, there was one question that I struggled to answer. But, that’s was of no surprise to me.
As you can guess by the spoiler-y title I’m going to discuss the crime, mystery, and thriller books that I purchased over the last six months of 2019. Yes, some of these books have been sitting in a pile on the floor in my office for eighteen months. What can I say? I’m a chronic procrastinator.
As you can guess by the spoiler-y title I’m going to discuss 13 crime, mystery, suspense and thriller novels featuring characters who are journalists. I’ve decided to divide this episode up into two parts, the first is “books I want to read” and the second is “books I’ve read.”
As suggested by the title, I’m going to dive into the depths of my Kindle app and share with you the mystery and thriller novels that are lurking and waiting to be read by me. Don’t worry; I’ve managed to narrow this list down to twelve books. While I’m talking about my Kindle app, I will also get a bit nerdy and discuss my organisational habits with you.
During August, I decided to devote much of my time to preparing my debut crime thriller novel, Missing for publication. So that meant, revising my fourth draft and preparing the manuscript for editing. At present, I’m eight books behind schedule. In the spirit of reading and getting back on track in this episode of the Thriller Novel Nerd Podcast, I’m going to share with you exactly what’s on my TBR list.
As you can probably tell by the super spoiler-y title of this blog post, I’m a writer, and I’m in a reading slump. I find this super embarrassing because, at the moment, all I’m doing is writing, editing, and preparing my books for publication.
The Book Nerd is a virtual book club podcast that comes out every second Sunday. Each episode will be a maximum of 20 minutes Long. I wanted to make each show short and be respectful of your time because I get it, you’re busy and may not have a spare hour to listen to a podcast or watch a video.
So, way back at the end of April, I decided I wanted to start filming a regular thriller novel book haul on my YouTube Channel every month. I aimed to share them here on this blog, because I’m a bit of a bibliophile and a game nerd, as you can see by the wall of bookshelves behind me in the video. In my defence, the books and games aren’t all mine. My husband, Roland also has a bit of a book problem – he’s a book nerd and a game nerd. Actually, he came with the games and some of them are super cool, but I digress.
